Rouse Ye Women (And Then We Danced)

By | Published on Wednesday 7 August 2013

‘Rouse Ye Women’ is an interesting, historical story that delivers convincing dramatic performances, enthusiasm and plenty of percussion! The original musical tells the simple story of a group of chain working women in the 1900s and their struggle for better working conditions. The all-female chorus gives a powerful and theatrical performance whilst tackling challenging harmonies with success. The inventive use of props as instrumental percussion, the only instruments used throughout, created catchy numbers; although at times the singing was drowned out by the percussion. A stunning solo by Yasmin Frampton from the chorus was the true highlight of the musical; it was beautiful and effortlessly delivered. A unique musical that really draws in its audience.

C, until 17 Aug, 7.50pm.
